went down in the last the election, too. >> went down from the standpoint that they lost to democrats unlike some of these mr. murdoch for instance. we are supposed to wonder chris richard murdoch, indiana. >> why we don't have the women's vote when we have a candidate suggesting that a child born as a result of rape is a gift from god. i'm not wondering why we don't have more women voting for republicans. >> chris: let me ask you about that. karl rove called the conservative victory project to try to get into the the primaries to make sure there are more electable republicans. congressman you are about to start your own super pac to promote electable candidates in republican primaries. have any problem with that. first of all, why do you think that is wrong? >> i think the definition of electable is what we are debating here and you you look at who has been winning elections. it has been interesting exciting young inne energetic e like ted cruz and marco rubio and if you apply the establishment litmus test which tends to be biased for people already in office you will not get the new

's list -- reviews you can trust. oh, angie? i have her on speed dial. >> well, there's our election music back again. so soon? maybe not. and maybe not too soon. one of america's most respected political forecasters is today offering his first full prediction of the 2014 mid terms. and you know president obama has been focused on those, as a lot of his behavior since he won his second term has we are told been focused trying to recapture the house for the democrats. and our next guest has an eye looking ahead on the president's chances of doing that. larry sabado, good to see you again. >> nice to see you and glad people can't reach through the television to strangle. >> megyn: have you enjoyed your break and have a nice time? you've been putting it to good use, trying to forecast the next big election. as i say you're not alone. the president seems focused on the goal of reclaiming the house for the democrats and the democrats do indeed have a much higher approval rating in the house than the republicans. and so you say what about the dems' chances of doing that? >> well, they're c
should have soul searching, particularly if you have an election like 2012 where there were a lot of things that made you feel like republicans could have won. you have the president who was not very popular. you have very high unemployment. you have a very weak economy. it was interesting that in the obama recovery, family income went down to $2,500 a year, where during the recession, income went down $1,500 a year. families were doing worse, yet in the campaign, obama ran an extremely good campaign, and he won despite his disadvantages and he won frankly in a predictable way. he made the election about his opponent. the romney people allowed obama to define romney. this was rather than romney defining romney, and that is why it is important for republicans to look back and say, what did we do wrong? the idea that the republican party is in some terrible shape -- >> you do not buy that? >> certainly i do not buy that. i have seen terrible shape. i remember watergate, i remember when the 13% of americans identified themselves as republicans, and the national chairman appointed peo
about his plans to compromise after the u.s. election. >> after my election i'll have more flexibility. >> as in putin. the pentagon is scrapping phase four of the european missile defense. the sm-3 block missile interceptors to stop intercontinental ballistic missiles or icbms like the ones iran is attempting to build. the pentagon said the decision has nothing to do with russia. >> let me emphasize the strong and continued commitment of the united states to nato missile defense. that commitment remains ironclad. >> we lost a bargainship, serious one i believe. >> others say the stage four were never viable and wouldn't be ready soon enough. >> the military implication of not developing phase four is not that great. the existing program is probably good enough. >> initial reaction from russia suggests their leaders do not feel "appeased." russia deputy foreign minister said this is not a concession to russia and we don't see it as such. >> bret: jennifer griffin at the pentagon. thank you. iran says it has launched domestically built destroyer in the caspian sea. this is video from ir
game. >> and i won and he didn't. and the bottom line is -- >> you won in the elections -- >> i won in the elections, i had to win in 2009. christie and bob mcdonald in blue states. like new jersey, purple states like virginia. we laid down the ground game. national, 50-state strategy, we didn't have to go through the hoopla of press conferences, we just went out and did the heavy work of rebuilding the party. coming off of massive losses in 2006 and 2008. so raince is just being silly. i understand that, he wasn't complaining about debt and concern about debt when i was writing checks to wisconsin when he was chairman and wanted to win the state legislature, which they did. win the governorship, which they did. we focused both at the federal and the state level. and at the end of the day, the members were all on board about going into debt to win. now the rnc had a surplus, they had money in the bank at the end of the 2012 cycle. but they had nothing to show for it you lose eight house seats, you don't win the white house, when you should, that to me is more than enough evidence of
today. and you were the first, as we said, iraq war vet to be elected to congress. when you hear about these casualties today on the ten-year anniversary, what is your reaction? do you believe that it needs to be more part of the discourse there in the beltway? >> without a doubt. it is not part of the discourse because most folks don't have skin in the game. less than 1% of americans have served in iraq or afghanistan. it goes to your point. we should be talking about this. it is the defining political issue of the last ten years. and it is just a colossal, strategic failure of the bush administration to know that we had almost 4,500 of america's best and brightest killed in action, over 32,000 wounded in action, and over 100,000 iraqis dead for an unnecessary war. and a war that should basically never have happened and also a war that we put our troops into harm's way, basically over a religious civil war without the amount of troops that the military generals asked for. >> what do you remember when you see this piece of news that we're reporting today? what do you remember back to t
obamacare, which was the central issue the last campaign where you remember president obama was re-elected, the senate went even more democratic, and the house democrats gained seats and won over a million more votes than the republicans. normal people would think that the obamacare issue might be settled. does anybody realistically think it's going away any time soon? the republican fantasy budget reduces taxes dramatically without a hint of how it would be possible. without exploding the deficit or dramatically raising taxes on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fan
to be a factor. the next elections next year are going to show, hopefully, the more mature response from the electorate. having said that, i quickly add the qualification of this will be, again, colored and tempered by the fears of being whipped up right now. among the islamist shia, there is a weapon they use, the are coming to get you. and that is now amplified by the sunnis arabs are coming to get you. that makes the fear even more potent. the best things that the sunni arabs in iraq should do is try to alleviate this year. most of the wider element is aware of the danger of this fear, of government out of control. coming back to muqtada, the next elections, if they are not colored by a fervor, might produce a more mature out, and provide a new crop of younger leaders who have been less contaminated by the events of recent years. there is a ray of hope there. >> if i could just add to that, i agree entirely with the ambassador's assessment of muqtada al-sadr. he himself does not know what is doing the day after tomorrow. sadly, assassination can be very effective and the assassination
: i certainly knew about it. we had not seen anyone look at it in the 2012 election cycle. decided toe and i take a snapshot. it is something i have heard about. it has come up from time to time. in fact, it used to be back before they changed ethics rules about a decade ago in congress, there were relatives .n official payrolls so that has changed some. here are some other members of that "usa today" mentions. the democrat of virginia congressman paid his daughter when hundred $5,000 -- thousands of dollars in bonuses. that amount -- guest: much smaller in terms of doug's payment. a spokeswoman said he was looking for someone else to do the job. $33,000.d about the practice is not limited to veteran lawmakers. the idaho republican congressman who was elected in 2010 put his wife on the payroll. a few months after he got sworn in, may 2011, she earned about $41,000 over a two-year. -- timeframe. host: democrat line, welcome. john? manchester, new hampshire, independent line. caller: good morning, thank you for taking my call. , thank you foren reporting the facts. i believe almost ever
behalf and political benefit in the case of the united states to help them win election. he was saying your political leaders respects going to take the risks unless you push them and force them to take risks. it was an interesting play. particularly coming as it did after what he said in the press conference. >> bret: i would attribute that to rhetoric. look, obama understands that with what is happening around israel, egypt in hands of the brotherhood, rockets landing today from gaza, chemical weapons probably loose in syria. hezbollah on the northern border. and iran today announcing it would destroy tel aviv if there is an israeli attack. in that kind of uncertainty and hostility, no way they could be asks to take risks today. number one priority is iran, number two is syria. >> bret: last thing on iran. he reiterated iran must not get a nuclear weapon. and cannot be contained. peres said america is looking for peace but if somebody threatens peace america is not a chicken. >> this whole conversation, i don't see thissed are call shift that you are portraying. israel go beyond the
finishing first last night in a special election, advancing to a runoff in two weeks in his bid to win a house seat. he picked up 37% of the vote, well short of the 50% needed to avoid a runoff. sanford calling his victory humbling. >> the voters care about is not my personal journey, what they care about is what am i going to do if elected to watch out for their pocketbook and their wallet. >> sanford was forced to step down as governor after lying about an extramarital affair. if sanford wins next month's special election, he'll face off against democrat elizabeth colbert-bu colbert-bush. >> people love a comeback story, don't they? >> he says he is going to support his sister. >> all right. one more story to tell you about, folks. the man whose 911 call may have prevented a campus massacre at the university of central florida speaking out saying how it all went down. police say suspect james cumaran pulled the fire arm at the ufc dorm when his roommate came out to investigate the suspect. allegedly pointed an assault rifle right at him. here's what he told anderson cooper. >> i was
if the elected officials who rule the world. things could make a difference. it brings me to the proposal in which my argument issue. the proposal that in order give voice and a largeness of life and political act to what cities are already doing. what inner city organizations are doing. we need to convene something like a global assembly of city. a global parliament of payors. and in order to do that, are so you joining me, sir, or coming up to take those away? thank you. we need a global mayors pal -- parliament. not a top down executive telling cities what to do. but a representative organization that allows cities to consult, to opt in and out, and to do together what they are already doing informally. and let me just conclude by -- if you don't mind. i don't like to read. i'm going read the last few pages here of the chapter about global parliament. i want to be con skies and make clear what it's about. isn't that grandiose. isn't that kind of utopian. what i want to suggest is this when i propose a mayor's parliament, i'm not asking for a mandate for top down sovereignty by mega cit
expertise to this because half of the board members are elected but essentially public emplooees in california and don't have any qualifications for being on the board. they have to make changes legislatively taken care of. gerri: the people getting hurt here, does not necessarily the pension, it is taxpayers. what is the price tag of this? >> here is the thing, a recent report put calpers in the bottom 5% in the country among investment returns several years. this is not right. this is a state that has enormous unfunded pension liabilities and projected 7.5% annual returns every year, they are going to be one of the worst performers. so there is a history really of mismanagement that really needs to be changed, they need professional management. gerri: the problem is how do you tear apart, how do you break away elected officials and the unions themselves because it seems to me the two of them coming together that create this unholy alliance that causes this to happen. >> the real problem is so heavily board is elected by members and basically union friendly, all you need is a co
will have several meetings and working dinner with newly re-elected prime minister benjamin netanyahu. of course, no secret that the relationship between these two leaders hasn't always been a warm one. besides discussing peace between israel and palestine what a-- oe of the other major topics is iran's nuclear program. the president encouraged their leaders to move toward peace. >> now is the time for the iranian government to take immediate and meaningful steps to reduce tensions and work toward an enduring, long-term settlement of the nuclear issue. >> i want to bring in matt welch editor-in-chief of "reason" magazine and mckay copins. good to see both of you. >> thank you so much. the white house managing expectations, matt. what do they want out of this trip? >> i think what obama is trying to do besides serially lower expectations is talk directly to the people of israel and the palestinian authority themselves. he is going to give a talk to an informal talk at a youth center in the west bank and a talk to israeli students. he thinks if he moves around the political structure he
's very simple. it's to stop noncitizens and especially illegal immigrants from voting in u.s. elections. federal courts have been split on the issue. an appeals court did strike it down. this issue has not gotten a lot of attention. it could prove to be a mid one when the court wraps up its term in june. >> a lot of people wonder if a lot of illegal immigrants are starting to vote and according to one poll, they said .001% of florida's voters turned out to be illegal. so why there is so much attention for what really is a small problem? >> reporter: i find the answer is a lot like a lot of things in politics. there are two political parties that run in parallel existence and see completely different things. there are a lot of republicans who argue it is a big deal and it's just not paid attention to. a lot of people say it's an issue that fraud is not being addressed properly and you have studies on that the democratic side who say it's hardly an issue at all. it's something that's spurred the political debate and i'm not sure it will be settled. >> the republicans just finished up thei
all of a sudden. you get re-elected everybody loves each other. you know. absolutely. and i think that you have to remember that the prime minister of israel just formed a very fragile coalition government, and so the president, it's very shaky ground in israel, as well, in terms of his approval among israeli jews. many of them are sort of neutral about president obama. they don't dislike him but they don't adore him. and so for each man there is a big reason to show that they are in good for the other guy, to get some credit here in israel. and so, yes, there is good reason for each to show that all those old wounds are well on their way toward healing. nobody here is going to pretent that they don't have troubles. but they are showing that they can get along. >> keep looking for those smiles. thanks to jessica yellin in tel aviv this morning. we will come back to you over the course of the morning. this went from what was going to be a symbolic visit to one where all of a sudden there are urgent matters to discuss with the specter of chemical weapons possibly being used in syria
voting in u.s. elections. federal courts have been split on the issue. an appeals court did strike it down. this issue has not gotten a lot of attention. it could prove to be a mid one when the court wraps up its term in june. >> a lot of people wonder if a lot of illegal immigrants are starting to vote and according to one poll, they said .001% of florida's voters turned out to be illegal. so why there is so much attention for what really is a small problem? >> reporter: i find the answer is a lot like a lot of things in politics. there are two political parties that run in parallel existence and see completely different things. there are a lot of republicans who argue it is a big deal and it's just not paid attention to. a lot of people say it's an issue that fraud is not being addressed properly and you have studies on that the democratic side who say it's hardly an issue at all. it's something that's spurred the political debate and i'm not sure it will be settled. >> the republicans just finished up their big c-pac conventions and one of t
t moving into the next cycle of e elections and announced yesterday he is going to spend $12 million of his own money in the senate races. these are not even senate races. these are in states where he thinks we can get the votes from senators for the gun safety measures that are now in the u.s. senate. so this is the influence of gun safety legislation, including the assault weapons ban that president obama wants out of the senate. on "meet the press" yesterday, michael bloomberg said yeah, it's my own money and i think it's certainly appropriate that this is the way that i spend it. >> if i can do that by spending some money and taking the nra from being the only voice to being one of the voices so the public can really understand the issues, then i think my money would be well spent and i think i have an obligation to do that. >> bill: yes, i remember he did won, his candidate, i for get her name right now won that special e ladies and gentlemen to take reverend -- not reverent but jesse jackson, junior's seat in chicago. she didn't have a prayer un

relationship, of course, alex. pope benedict xvi even before the pope francis was elected pledged obedience and reverence to the next pope just to make sure that there was no doubt that he wouldn't put any of his authority in doubt, and pope francis on his side has said all along on numerous occasions that he has gratitude or expressed his gratitude towards the work done by pope benedict xvi during his eight years of pontificate. even called him a couple of times on the phone. the first night after his election he called him up to express his gratitude and then he called him again on saint joseph day after the mass of the installation mass, as saint joseph, of course, was also the day for joseph ratzinger, the real name of cardinal of pope benedict xvi. we're all here waiting to see whether the pope appears on the balco balcony, but also to see how that meeting goes. >> i did appreciate that one of the first things the pope did upon being elected was offer prayers for benedict. so clearly they must have a very good relationship. claudio, thank you so much. >>> in about an hour, president ob

single idea, every single individual from the most junior member just elected two months ago to the most senior member who has been here for 40 years, if you have a budget idea, you get to have it heard on the floor of the house. in this case, mr. speaker, that's going to be six buckets we are going to look at -- budgets we are going to look at tomorrow. six budgets. mr. speaker, i believe having an open process is important. we made in order the progressive caucus budget. that progressive caucus budget trillion.es by $5.7 unashamed, unabashed. tough economy, let's raise taxes by $5.7 trillion. and let's increase spending even more than we are today. i'm glad that that budget's going to be here on the floor. congressional black caucus raises taxes $4. trillion. mr. van hollen's substitute raises taxes $1.2 trillion. and you saw the chart the chairman of the rules committee had on the floor of the house here earlier. we don't have a tax problem, we have a spending problem in this country. if we took everything from everybody, we still wouldn't have enough money to pay for all the promises
the best leader and, of course, legend in the tv world. much, much more. he helped elect three presidents. and roger, you are the best. buy the book to get a look behind the scenes at who he is. >> bob: that was moving commentary. >> andrea: thank you. i feel passionate about the topic. as you can see. >> dana: i'm switching topics. good news, bad news. yoga abouts there could be a shortage of black yoga pants. lululemon, out of vancouver, british columbia has a problem. shipment came in and everybody buys the yoga pants but they're too sheer. they only discovered this because people in yoga class realized they were revealing more than they were planning on. so if you want to find up for yoga classes around here, you might -- >> bob: i'll sign up tomorrow. >> dana: there could be a shortal of black yoga pants. freddie there are people in second and third worlds who do yoga. >> dana: in black lululemon yoga pants? >> greg: yes! >> bob: i have been saying this for a long time. the biggest threat to the united states ever will be the chinese. they have now involved in cyber hacking in our co
card. call now! >>brian: we're learning about the first ever cyber attack in the u.s. election. it happened in florida last year. authorities say hackers tried to get absentee ballots in an attempt to sweep three primary elections. >>> tiger woods and lindsey vonn confirming their relationship. they say they were friends for some time but over the last few months they became very close and are now dating. that's not all. the two posted cutesy photos of them together on their facebook pages. as you can imagine, reaction is pouring in. mike on prompter can't believe it. others say don't have much faith in the tiger woods-lindsey vonn relationship, but at least she's used to things going downhill quickly. that's nice and optimistic. anna, build on that. >>anna: six minutes before the seven is the time. the unemployment rate for our veterans has gone down in the past months but still nearly two points higher than the national average. our next guest is trying to change that. kevin o'brien is managing partner of veteran recruiting service. good morning to you. >> thanks for having m

community, particularly during this last election, who saw benjamin netanyahu cozying up to mitt romney, who were very skeptical about the president and israel. i think this trip as john king was saying earlier makes it very clear particularly when the president on the question of iran said all options are on the table, period, the president made it very clear as he said in his speech today, you are not alone. so i think domestically, politically, this trip is only good for the president. it makes him be seen as a leader. next to benjamin netanyahu these two men need each other in many ways right now and i think that is why you see this relationship blossoming. >> richard haas do you think anything is going to come of this? will there be a peace process any time soon? >> again, the situation is decidedly unripe given the divisions of the palestinians, the israeli government is not a government that was elected to make peace. this was a government that was elected to deal with the special privileges of the orthodox within israeli society. you got the turbulence in egypt. you will have turbule
with -- but the israeli government was not fully anded until saturday night into monday. they had their election just after the inauguration here in january. there was a lot of trouble forming a finalized coalition with the other parties there. obama is coming into a situation where there is not a huge amount that can really get done with a new government because they're still sorting themselves out and getting in a position. is much weakened from where he was before the election. he has fewer members of his own party and the parliament is in a situation where it is not entirely clear what the way forward is going to be. that is what obama is coming into, as he goes into these meetings. , with politico. thanks for your time this morning. guest: thank you. host: president obama and the prime minister will give you -- will be giving a joint press conference. look for coverage on c-span.org. minister ofrael defense from 2007 until this week wrote a piece in today's wall street journal. host: back to our discussion here for the 10th anniversary of the iraq war. we are getting your thoughts this morning.
friend bebe. he knows, benjamin netanyahu just won re-election like the president has. the netanyahu is likely to be in the job for a while. he is fated to have to deal with him. so it makes sense to have this kind of at least, get the relationship back into at least a, some kind of, lack of hostility at a minimum. jon: it was written in one of the papers that the president offered to israel or israelis the kind of warm embrace that they are accustomed to getting from american presidents but they hadn't gotten from this president up till now. >> no, they haven't. there is no question about that. in fact the first term was full of testy exchanges and i think that the president thought, okay, i can twist israel's arm and make them do this. it turns out he really can't. he needs their trust. now he also went to ramallah and met with the palestinian authority leader where they were a lot warier about u.s. commitments and you think he discovered that, there is still a long, way, jon, for there to go between if we get peace between the palestinians and israelis. it is an interesting questi
incomparable in the house. the idea that it drove the adoption of doma -- >> it was an election year and a people do not have the political power to protect themselves. >> i want to ask whether, are there any intermediate positions between striking doma down entirely end up holding? i do not think so. >> you said that there are different cases. they are. statesstion is, do these have the authority to retain the traditional state of marriage? not that they have to. need a? it is the question on both. >> not asking you to yield their position. are there any interim positions in the case that the court could find between on the one hand doing what they suggested, to stay -- say the states have the full power to uphold or to change or do anything was same- sex marriages? and what the strongest view of the challengers is in prop. 8 our calls distinguishes unconstitutional. is a standing argument. >> it would be in a weird way. it would probably mean that there be marriage equality restored in california. >> why? quiet the judgments stays in effect. the that is clear at all. it is more tha
elections? >> well it is critical. you stop and think about this. of course let's focus here on the senate, not the house. what you have is, you have i think it is 10 democratic senators who are unaring in states that were won by mitt romney. so you have them very cautious about upsetting gun owners and upsetting powerful forces, forces with dollars to spend on campaigns like the nra. gun hobbyists who of course vote and turn out in big numbers behind this issue. this is an issue that will bring out voters to the polls. this is why you had not seen any motion on gun control before newtown. the president despite the concern of people who are gun enthusiasts had not taken any action. feinstein, senator feinstein had not taken any action even though the assault weapons ban had expired just about 10 years earlier. so you see the change. jenna: let's a little bit about that because dianne feinstein says she is disappointed in this. she said if you think congress would listen and clearly listened to the nra. a lot of fingers point to the nra as the reason behind the fact this part of the legisla

servants. it's about the oath we took as an elected official that we would serve our communities, that we would come here and make a difference. so congressman bera, for me, it's about standing strong and saying to my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, join us, join us and make a difference -- in making a difference to help our seniors and to protect and to save medicare. and that's my message and my story. nd i yield back. mr. bera: thank you to my colleague from the great state of ohio. that's why we're asking folks today to share their stories. we'd love to hear your story about how medicare has affected you or a family member or a friend. share it on facebook or twitter. we want to hear those stories. this body needs to hear those stories. this body needs to make sure when we're taking votes we're voting understanding those stories. you know, as a doctor, i took oath to do good, to do no harm. well, if medicare becomes a voucher program, it will do irrep ribble harm -- irrepairable harm to millions of americans. the reason i'm on the floor today is to talk about the good that medi
this vote, because there will be some democrats, up for re-election in red states, in states that traditionally vote republican, that may have a tough time casting a vote for this particular budget. because it doesn't balance. also, remember, that a number of these senators have never voted on a budget. martha: yeah. good point. >> the senate has never put one forward. this will be their first vote on a budget and this process will then get them on the record supporting this version. so it's, you know it is an important moment tomorrow. martha: sure is. what a great point. some have been around several years and never voted on a budget before. this will be a first-time experience. we hope they enjoy that part of the job. bret, thank you so much. see you tonight on "special report". bret baier. bill: 18 past the hour. secretary of state john kerry is under fire. why a group of lawmakers are saying that the state department is not doing enough to free an american pastor jailed in iran. an update on that. martha: an amazing discovery where a piece of of apollo history was just f

need the help of our elected officials to give us the certainty, flexibility, and time to make change. if we can get reforms to pay in compensation we need, and we need them, and if we can get rid of weapons and infrastructure we do not need, then we can begin to restore the versatility of sustainableorce at a costs. as i stand here today, i do not yet know whether or if for how much our defense strategy will change, but i predict it will. we will need to look at our assumptions and adjust our ambitions to match our ability, and that means doing less, but not doing less well. it also means relying more on our other instruments of power to help underwrite global security. we will not do this well if we do not back the development with sufficient dollars. and our partners will have to work with us and collaborate with us on accepting a greater share of the risk. some are more ready and willing to do that than others. i have to say the united arab emirates is almost -- is our most credible and capable ally, in the gulf region. our first line of defense has been and will be our people. th

. speaker. the american people expect elected leaders in washington o revive our stagnant economy. we've offered a responsible plan to balance the budget with responsible reforms. the best plan senate democrats can come with continues to spend more money than we take in. their budget never balances. it includes $1.5 trillion in new taxes. mr. walberg: at least senate democrats have finally come around to offering a plan after spending the last four years on the sidelines. the president has yet to submit his budget to congress. already six weeks behind his legal deadline. budgets offer a picture of how government plans to steward taxpayers' money. the senate asked for higher taxes, to fund higher spending, to finance ever-growing government. my constituents are tired of the cavalier and unserious approach that has become all too common in washington. i'm pleased that the house republican majority continues to take its responsibility seriously and produce budgets which balance, getting us back on track to fiscal sanity and a healthy economy. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the ti
